GPS snapshot techniques are becoming more and more popular in the scientic community mostly due to the fact that they involve minimizing hardware components and reducing power consumption, both aspects leading to dramatic cost reductions.

The motivation of the present project is to provide new functionality to GPS snapshot techniques. We focused on two main directions: improving position accuracy and making the application available for non-experienced users by automatically providing necessary assistance data.

These concepts are approached by automating the process of providing assisted data, by analyzing, implementing, and comparing different tracking algorithms and pseudo-range corrections.
Our results demonstrate improvements in accuracy levels and energy consumption.
